What exactly does it mean? Facebook’s official line on this, on their help page, explains that they make selections for your Suggested Friends based on ‘mutual friends, work and education information, networks you’re part of, contacts you’ve imported and many other factors’.
Why do certain peoples names show on Facebook suggestions?
If someone has uploaded their contacts and it includes your mobile phone number or email address, you may show up as friend suggestions for each other.
How does FB choose which friends to display on profile?
It is based on friends of friends, mutual friends, employers or schools you have in common, your home town, current city, and probably a few other things. But again, the algorithm intoduces some randomness. The people are not listed in rank order by the number of friends you have in common.
Can someone tell if you look at their Facebook a lot?
Since its beginning, Facebook has always forbidden users to know such content and it clearly states, “Facebook doesn’t let people track who views their profile. Third-party apps also can’t provide this functionality. If you come across an app that claims to offer this ability, please report the app.”
How does Facebook decide what 6 friends to show?
The algorithm chooses interactions, activity, communication, photos, etc. This determines which friends will show up on top and have priority. The friends that you communicate with most often will usually be first on this list.
How can you find out if someone is stalking you on Facebook?
In order to find out who is stalking you on Facebook, users need to open Facebook.com on their desktops, then log in to their account. Upon logging in, they need to right-click anywhere on their home page, and click “View page source” – this will open the source code for the Facebook home page.
Why would Facebook suggest someone with no mutual friends?
Most friend suggestions are based on having friends in common. If you see a suggestion with no mutual friends, keep in mind that some people have their friends list set to private. This means that some suggestions who are friends of friends may not show the friends you have in common.
Why is the same person always at the top of my Facebook chat?
Friends who appear at the top of the Facebook Chat sidebar are people you interact with regularly. Facebook attempts to work out which friends you are most likely to want to chat with, and places these contacts at the top of the list in Facebook Chat. Facebook also displays these friends more often in your news feed.
Why does my Facebook friends list keep changing?
Just as with the default setting, Facebook changes up the order of these user-specified friends and friend lists based on your interactions on Facebook as well as by random selection, meaning the order of the friends displayed may be different every time you — or your friends — visit your profile.
What happens when you view someone’s profile on Facebook?
If you search a person on Facebook and view a profile, what happens? In your worst imaginings, your ex receives an alert that you’ve been checking them out. However, Facebook doesn’t let users track who visits their profiles, and it doesn’t permit third-party apps to do it.
Is it possible to see who views your Facebook profile?
No, Facebook doesn’t let people track who views their profile. Third-party apps also can’t provide this functionality. If you come across an app that claims to offer this ability, please report the app.
Can I look at someone’s Facebook profile without them knowing?
Even though the person whose profile you’re looking at has no way of knowing you were on his timeline, Facebook knows. All site activities, including the profiles you visit, are recorded by Facebook. This information, however, will not be shared with anyone.
